Report: Andrew Garfield Refused to Present at Oscars with “Batkid”
We all loved seeing five-year-old cancer patient Miles Scott become “Batkid” in San Francisco last year, but apparently the whole thing wasn’t that moving for Andrew Garfield.
When the “Amazing Spider-Man” star was asked to present an award with Scott at the Oscars over the weekend, he ended up bowing out.
A Page Six source shared, "The Academy was going to make [Miles] an official superhero during the Oscar ceremony. Andrew Garfield was going to appoint him 'Batkid.’ But, in the middle of the dress rehearsal, Garfield decided he didn't like his lines."
After the producers insisted Andrew use their script, it was all over. "Garfield had a tantrum. He stormed off. Miles and his family were devastated."
As a result of Andrew's absence, "Captain America" star Chris Evans took over the hosting duties.
